pedal box 2

upon posting idea of wilwood pedal on TT, davesideways posted this item, made by
this looks to be a more appropriate set, (many thanks davesideways) the layout seems to be well designed. the linked sale on e-bay for this set had finished, however an e-mail to nasty bob resulted in a set ordered. again a false floor will maybe have to be used, and the seat may have to be set for safe use and comfort. the measuring so far, seems to support this item. the cost for pedal box , without m/c's is around £250.

pedal box

ap racing sell a few really cool floor mounted pedal sets, cp5500 & cp5516, prices are exotic, at £1000+ & £2000+.
so in an effort to save some cash i searched the various sources, and found the pictured wilwood item. weight = 1.1lbs (without cylinders). my initial thought was to incorporate false floor, and have the cylinders heading towards firewall. not an ideal system, but i feel would be functional.
these wilwood items are around £55.
